The Sydney Smith JR Collision at Blue Water Bridge

  • Port Huron, mi USA (map)

Ric Mixter shares government footage of the recovery of the Smith after a collision in the shadow of the Blue Water Bridge in Port Huron. Quick action saved the crew, but the wreck crippled shipping traffic for several weeks while the Army Corps came up with a plan to remove the hulk. Ric will also take the audience on a dive in the swift water to show what is left of the wreck today. Sponsored by the Lake Huron Lore Maritime Society, dinner starts at 6p
